A new “vertical creative office” designed by Foster + Partners is set for Downtown Los Angeles. The Star is a sleek highrise that features a spiraling vertical garden and is designed to attract Hollywood's top content creators.

New renderings show the firm's plans to include floor-to-ceiling windows that will offer 360-degree unobstructed views of the Hollywood Sign, DTLA, and the Pacific Ocean. Plenty of outdoor space, as well as a rooftop restaurant, are just some of the features that the architects hope will foster a nurturing community of workers.

The garden that moves vertically up the building provides plenty of green gathering spaces for creators to collaborate and for individuals to find moments to cater to their own well-being. Through natural light, ventilation, and clearly defined spaces, the design aims to help people work better and be more efficient while thriving in all aspects.

“Cascading gardens for outdoor working, natural light, and ventilation create a healthy and highly productive working environment on Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard,” shares Patrick Campbell, senior partner at Foster + Partners. The Star will also make an impact at street level thanks to the restaurants, community gathering spaces, theater, and gallery that are planned for the ground floor.

“We have worked with leaders in the creative and tech industries to redefine The Star into a project that both fits perfectly into Hollywood’s urban fabric and captures the evolving workplace,” said Maggie Miracle, chief executive officer and chair of The Star LLC.  “The office space seamlessly moves from indoor to outdoor settings with extraordinary collaborative areas and tasteful settings that allow for contemplation and innovation.”
